There's always a bit of reservation and dread involved when it comes to introducing your latest romantic squeeze to the folks, even more so when the holidays come around, a natural time of communal catch-up and criticism. Offering a humorous alternative to the countless stage productions of Charles Dickens' “A Christmas Carol,” Swift Creek Mill Theatre presents Tom Dudzick's off-Broadway production, “Greetings,” a situational comedy about a young man named Andy who thinks Christmas is the opportune occasion to introduce his devout Catholic parents to his atheist Jewish fiancee. Blending some relatable what-are-you-doing-with-your-life squabbling with the old-fashioned, feel-goodness of a Frank Capra film, “Greetings” opens at the Swift Creek Mill Theatre on Nov. 19 at 8 p.m., continuing through Jan. 2. $35-$50. 17401 Jefferson Davis Highway.
